The PowerBall Possibilities is a constant of the possible combinations (ignoring order) of the Powerball1 numbers and thus represents the probability of one set of numbers being drawn.  The number of possible combinations of the five white numbered balls and the one red numbered ball is equal to the number of possible choices of five unique numbers chosen from 69 unique white ball numbers (ignoring order of choice) multiplied by the 26 possible choices of the red ball.

Definition:
The Powerball Possibilities can be defined as C(69,5) * C(26,1) = 292,201,338
